  • Tiny “Tornado” Boosts Performance of Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectrometry

    Adding the equivalent of a miniature tornado to the interface between electrospray ionization (ESI) and a mass spectrometer (MS) has allowed researchers to improve the sensitivity and detection capability of the widely-used ESI-MS analytical technique. Among the scientific fields that could benefit from the new technique are proteomics, metabolomics and lipidomics – which serve biomedical and health applications ranging from biomarker detection and diagnostics to drug discovery and molecular medicine.

  • T. Richard Nichols is Newest Honorary Member of National Physical Therapists’ Organization

    Thanks to his research into motor skills and the science of movement, School of Biological Sciences Professor T. Richard Nichols is named a honorary member of the American Physical Therapy Association.

  • Thwarting Metastasis by Breaking Cancer’s Legs with Gold Rods

    Your cancer has metastasized. No one wants to ever hear that. Now researchers have found a way to virtually halt cell migration, a key component in metastasis, in vitro, in human cells. In past in vivo studies in mice, treated cancer did not appear to recur, nor did observable side effects.

  • Geometric Group Theory Gets an Informal Take from Tech Professor

    In his new book, Georgia Tech School of Mathematics Professor Dan Margalit explains the applications –and the beauty – of the relatively new mathematics field of geometric group theory.

  • Topsy-Turvy Motion Creates Light Switch Effect at Uranus

    Uranus’ magnetosphere, the region defined by the planet’s magnetic field and the material trapped inside it, gets flipped on and off like a light switch every day as it rotates along with the planet. It’s “open” in one orientation, allowing solar wind to flow into the magnetosphere; it later closes, forming a shield against the solar wind and deflecting it away from the planet.
